Final Gaming PC Thoughts

http://pcpartpicker.com/list/h94dXH

This is it, buying it soon. I just really want to be sure I am getting the performance out of the price I'm paying. Also would like to be sure that the cooler included with the processor is good enough...

  1. Your build looks great and the stock cooler will be fine. If you were interested, the Asrock Hyper series motherboards allow for overclocking locked processors.

  2. I'd always buy a full copy of Windows, the price difference is negligible and it wont be tied to the first motherboard its installed on like an OEM version. It also entitles you to Windows support but Ive never needed to use it

    Your build looks fine just the way it is.
    Keep the spec 02 case that spec 01 only comes with 1 fan making you buy more fans.
